Is it just me or are things, prices especially, seem to be getting worse? I have a fixed income which a couple of years ago was quite enough for my needs and wants but no more. I have stopped buying fabric unless it is really needed for a project and am using my scraps and stash. I no longer buy patterns, no more magazines, I use free ones I find on the internet. I have reduced the amount spent on groceries, clip coupons, only buy on sale items, plan errands to save on gas, etc. Haven't had any new clothing item in forever it seems. Forgot what it is like to eat out and going to a movie is a thing of the past.
I thought the wonderful folks here on the board would have some tips and tricks they are using to save money and make things stretch, not just sewing related but everything related. If so, please share with us.
